Texas Messes with Agenda 21

The Left sees Agenda 21 as “the rarest of opportunities to truly change the world” at the expense of individual liberty, telling us how to work, where to live, what power we can use, what cars we can drive. Continue reading

A Little-Noted Masterpiece of Constitutional Scholarship by Justice Thomas

Justice Thomas has provided us a masterpiece of constitutional thinking, explaining why “administrative law” — the practice of delegating to bureaucrats the making and enforcement of rules with the force of law — is so profoundly unconstitutional. Continue reading

The 72 Types of Americans Considered “Potential Terrorists” by the Obama Administration

Are you a conservative, a libertarian, a Christian or a gun owner? Are you opposed to abortion, globalism, Communism, illegal immigration, the United Nations or the New World Order? Do you believe in conspiracy theories, do you believe that we are living in the “end times” or do you ever visit alternative news websites (such as this one)? If you answered yes to any of those questions, you are a “potential terrorist” according to official U.S. government documents. Continue reading

The Old New World Order

By Thom, April 15, 2013 • People have been writing about the New World Order for so long that it’s starting to feel like the Old World Order. In many ways, it really is an ancient agenda. From Cicero through … Continue reading

Thomas Jefferson: Liberty and Power

It seems to me that in our present condition, the only means of getting judges, legislators, and executives to consult the actual provisions of the Constitution and to obey the oaths they take to observe its bounds and protect it is to adopt sanctions against its violation or evasion. In sum, it should be made a crime punishable by removal from office for any government officer, including members of Congress, to participate affirmatively in any act not authorized by or in violation of the Constitution. Trial for those accused should be in United States District Courts before a jury charged with determining whether a violation has taken place and a judge empowered to remove them from office. Continue reading

The Case Against Public Education

If public education is allowed to survive, all efforts to resuscitate the inert husk of modern civilization will fail. It is time to unravel the most wasteful and destructive entitlement program of all. Cancer cells do not divide into healthy cells. A corrupted, power-intoxicated political class will not willingly raise a freedom-loving, self-reliant populace. Governments must no longer be allowed to pre-determine their nations’ fates, by mass producing the populace that serves their interests. Continue reading

On Liberty

THE subject of this Essay is not the so-called Liberty of the Will, so unfortunately opposed to the misnamed doctrine of Philosophical Necessity; but Civil, or Social Liberty: the nature and limits of the power which can be legitimately exercised by society over the individual. A question seldom stated, and hardly ever discussed, in general terms, but which profoundly influences the practical controversies of the age by its latent presence, and is likely soon to make itself recognized as the vital question of the future. It is so far from being new, that, in a certain sense, it has divided mankind, almost from the remotest ages, but in the stage of progress into which the more civilized portions of the species have now entered, it presents itself under new conditions, and requires a different and more fundamental treatment. Continue reading

Secession, Sovereignty, and Salvation: Jefferson Lives!

We are a Rule of Law nation, born of the Enlightenment. We formed our federal government to work at the pleasure of Rule of Law States. We must remind ourselves (and the neo-federalists) that these laws were devised to protect a Sovereign People — by prohibiting the rule of unscrupulous men.

We must learn how to leverage our supreme laws and unalienable rights, effectively and enduringly. Learn to embrace State electoral politics. Learn to engage our State legislators, governors, and attorneys general. Learn how to petition through the courts, properly, and with critical mass. Continue reading

Limiting Government

Elected and appointed officials have passed regulations in almost every profession. The regulations distort business projections, interfere with our choices and plans, inculcate uncertainty and undermine risk-taking. They adversely affect income, job opportunities, and general prosperity as businesspeople seeking to protect their enterprises close their plants and/or farm out work to other nations. Continue reading

Tibor Machan on American Statism

The right approach is, of course, one that acknowledges that human beings are a species and have a common nature up to a point. But it also acknowledges that a distinctive aspect of the human being is its individuality! It is confirmed every minute within human communities, of course, as millions present ideas of their own by which to carry on their living. (Even Mr. Gass testifies to this by presenting his own particular take on the collectivist idea!) Continue reading
